MS Word Mail Merge FindRecord won't find

P: n/a
I want to merge just one record from a query in my Access database into
a Word document. This allows me to send one letter to one client by
first extracting the client's address data, personal data, business
data, and the like.

I get the entire query into the active word document with
..OpenDataSource in a VBA macro.

However, when I try to limit this to one record, the following VBA code
does not work:

ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.View.ShowFieldCodes = False
ActiveDocument.MailMerge.DataSource.ActiveRecord = wdFirstRecord
If ActiveDocument.FindRecord(FindText:=Filex, Field:="File") = True
numrecord = ActiveDocument.ActiveRecord
End If

Filex has been set to "007" and the query has at least one record where
the field named File = 007.

Nevertheless, numrecord is returned as "0" and the active record
remains the first record.

Also, the line "ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.View.ShowFieldCod es =
False" does not result in the data being shown - the field codes remain
displayed in the active document.
